I am flying Business class on Air Canada from BOS-YVR-NRT on a 319/747-400 respectively on Dec 25th and was wondering if anyone has any info on what to expect in the 747. I have flown AC's business class on the 319 and the 330 before, and was VERY impressed by the seats in the 330, can I expect similar? Howabout inflight entertainment? Thanks!

Air Canada uses the ex-Canadi>n Airlines B-747-400 on the YVR-NRT route. The seating in Executive First Class (formerly Empress Class on Canadi>n) is extremely comfortable. AC has yet to change the seats on these ex-CP aircraft. So expect a very comfortable ride!!
The ONLY thing I am not crazy about was the odd choice of Canadi>n Airlines to refit their interiors with grey seats. The grey has specks of gold, but still, I much rather preferred the old CP navy blue seats.
Still, VERY comfy seats, more comfy than the AC aircraft.

Air Canada Executive First in-flight cuisine is actually quite delicious. You will have a choice of up to 4 entrees, and their selections of wines are superb.
Infligght entertainment is the individual passenger video screen at each seat, with a wide selection of films and specialty channels. Pretty good.

I wish you a safe and pleasant journey to NRT!!!

Canadi>n Boy,

Thanks for the feedback, as one who doesn't get the chance to fly first internationally often, I was excited to hear a little bit more about ACs offering. Wondering if anyone else had any comments on how AC's Trans-Pac service/cabins stack up to American carriers on similar routes (e.g. UA, DAL, CO).. Thanks a bunch!

Hello there
Well I have flown on air Canada Executive First from YVR-YYZ and then Executive Class from YYZ-YYT. I have to say that they were amazing flights. On the way up to Vancouver was an A-319. From YYT-YYC Then on toe YVR. The service was out of this world. Then on the way back was the old 747-200 just before it was retired. Very roomy seats. Almost recline into a bed. WOW then the entertainment was second to none. Food was delicious. First part was a Salad. Strange name on it I cannot remember. But was very nice. Then had a sort of beef. again some really strange name on that as well. Very nice with spiced tomatoes, and these little Potatoes that were cut in the shape of Roses. Now I felt really bad eating them cause it took someone soo long to actually make them look that way. then had a lemon sorbet, with the last part being Almond sponge cake with a smothering of Chocolate Ganache!! God what a flight. I have to say the wine selection was great as well. and liquors after wards. Was a very nice flight. But still not as good as Roots Gold Class. ( sorry had to put that in there  Smile )
Hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip to NRT. Take care

Word of advice: When selecting your seat on-board in
Executive First, the main deck "A" cabin is your best bet. It is more spacious than the upper deck, where I always feel somewhat claustrophobic. But, that's just me, and my personal opinion.

Hope you'll enjoy the flight, AC as normally good food and decent service. (nothing extraordinary, but still good).
Regards, SafeFlyer.
